Mixed hopes in search for kidnapped Nigeria schoolgirls

A relative of one of the schoolgirls among the 276 kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists has told ITV News the international support in the search for the abducted group has not come too late.

Hopes for swift progress were dealt a blow, though, with former prime minister Gordon Brown, in his role as UN special envoy, telling ITV News he feared the girls had already moved out of the country.

Mr Brown, though, said everything would be done to aid the search.
